Gear Lube Leaking??

Postby BlewByU » Wed May 25, 2016 8:07 pm

This was the first run of the year, and after running and raising the lower unit, I noticed this gear oil leaking. It doesnt seem to be leaking after I cleaned it up, but what are your thoughts? I had my boat professionally winterized and its stored in my heated garage.

Hmm, prop shaft seal? Mercruiser premium lube is almost matching the color of your boat.I don't think the leak leak will disappear, need to get it checked out before the outdrive swallows some water.Has the lube monitor gone down?
I hope that the repairs don't cost you too much.

make sure the plastic washer is on the drain plug, otherwise looks like a shaft seal.
